Blocked

There has been lots of great food and nutrition news to report on since I last wrote, but I have been blocked. Blocked by just not feeling the muse. It has been tough getting together the creative juices that are required to write something interesting for some reason.

In the meantime I have also had a tough time keeping myself away from the processed carbohydrate that I love to hate. I have eaten out a bunch even since I got back from my two weeks living in a hotel. I have had pizza (crust), Coke, ice cream, tortillas, and plenty of worthless calories like those found in Girl Scout cookies and Krispy Kreme donuts.

To say I have been off the reservation is an understatement. Maybe that is why I can’t write about it, because I haven’t been living it. Preaching things I don’t live is pretty easy to do. Perhaps its because I am having a fun summer and haven’t found tons of time to write, but I love to write and when I am on it hasn’t mattered in the past what season it is and stream of consciousness doesn’t take long, and feels like it’s instantaneous.

At any rate, Ill be making the attempt this weekend and next week. Here is the plan. After tonight, zero processed food. If I eat ice cream I will have made it myself. Write every day about something, might not be about nutrition, the world is full of things about which I have an opinion. Make some sourdough bread–thats fun and its been a while since I have.

My plate is full of things I am behind on, and I don’t want to fall any further behind in the things I love doing.
